Over the years, we've developed relationships with some of the best technical and creative collaborators in the country. This allows us to thrive in our boutique culture where story and execution are paramount. Why is this important? Because this allows us to bring the very best skill set to meet the specific needs of your story.
So whether the team for your project is large or small, near or far, at the core there are 3 of us that are pretty close:
PATRICK TOURVILLE- Patrick is a consummate storyteller. With four decades of experience, his career started at age 17 in Dallas when he won his first national film award and received a grant from PBS to start his filmmaking journey. His work has garnered numerous prizes including Tellys and Addys, awards from the International Advertising Association, a Clio nomination and many film festivals. While having experience across a broad array of traditional marketing and advertising disciplines, Patrick has thrived in the documentary or real people format and has always sought alternative ways to reach an audience . While working in Los Angeles in the nascent days of home video, he formed Music Clinic with legendary drummer Russ Kunkel. Music Clinic produced hybrid music videos with both performance and instruction, featuring performers like Joe Walsh and Bill Payne of Little Feat. The following year he formed Main Street Home Video to produce and distribute educational programming in the burgeoning market of corporate sponsored home video. While residing in Maine in the nineties he formed Public Service Media to bring Washington DC nonprofit advocacy groups together with corporations to expand reach for the non-profit and provide socially-conscious branding for the corporation. In 2006 he returned to Texas to explore the interactive television opportunities of Video on Demand (VOD) with Time Warner Cable. He created Publik Music on Demand, a 24/7 music channel airing in four Texas markets. In 2011 he produced and directed his first feature film, OK Buckaroos, a documentary about the life of legendary outlaw country singer/songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker. In 2014 Patrick relocated back to Maine.
BRANDEAUX TOURVILLE - Brandeaux unofficially started his filmmaking career in 1997 while working the set with his father, Patrick, who was directing a campaign for Road Runner High Speed Internet with Time Warner Cable. Script called for a single take :30 wherein the talent was goofing off "playing basketball" with wads of paper and a toy hoop on a door in his office. As written he needed to make the shot! After burning a lot of film without a take that worked, Brandeaux quietly went to his father with a suggestion, change one line of copy and let him miss. It worked immediately and the spot was much funnier then originally conceived - client loved it! Then in the summer of his junior year of high school Brandeaux officially started his filmmaking career by completing an internship with Mike Medavoy (CEO of Phoenix Pictures) on the Sony Pictures lot. Brandeaux has gone on to develop, produce and collaborate with his father on numerous Publik Pictures projects. After establishing the Austin office of our company in 2008, Brandeaux returned to Los Angeles, where when not working with Publik Pictures he is a much sought after AD bringing 10 tons of production knowledge to a varied list of clients including Walmart, State Farm, Dell, ABC and Sony. Currently Brandeaux is in development on a self-penned short film, In The End.
TERRY TOURVILLE - Terry serves as Production and Business Manager for Publik Pictures. She has a background in both advocacy consulting and acting. As a consultant, she has facilitated and provided strategic planning for public and private initiatives to reach consensus between corporate clients, government entities and citizens alike. As an actor, Terry has appeared in award winning television commercials and was host of HGTV’s Dream House series. She met her husband, Patrick, when he cast her in a commercial for New York Life Insurance many moons ago, and for the last 15 years, she has been both in charge of their family and the business end of Publik Pictures. Terry loves the film industry, both in front and behind the camera, and takes pride in Publik Pictures' work.
